I enjoy sending letters to my pen-pals in collage art envelopes. Occasionally I spend one or two days creating mail art envelope blanks en masse and end up with 2 to 2-1/2 dozen of them for future use. I use “greeting card” envelopes sized 5-3/4″ x 8-3/4″. That size is nice because it holds 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper that has been folded once across the middle. It is also a very decent size for the materials I work with: reclaimed images from travel magazines and cruise catalogs; scrap and patterned papers; and washi tape. Finished off with a blank address label, the envelopes just need a letter and a stamp so that they’re ready to go.
